OUTinPerth reports record readership growth in 2017

OUTinPerth is excited to report that our online audience has continued to grow at record rates over the past twelve months.

In 2017 763,285 sessions were logged on the publication’s website, a traffic increase of 77% in comparison to the previous year. Since 2010 the publication’s online audience has increased six-fold.

The success of the publication’s digital product is coupled with the ongoing popularity of the print version of the magazine which sees 10,000 copies distributed to cafes and bars, supermarkets and shops across the city.

Since it first began as a monthly print publication in 2002, OUTinPerth has grown to include a news website that is updated daily, a weekday e-newsletter, social media channels and a regular podcasts.

Publishers Graeme Watson and Leigh Andrew Hill said they were overjoyed with the increasing popularity of OUTinPerth and thanked the many supporters of the magazine.

“It was a huge year for us. Aside from covering the debates and rallies associated with the fight for marriage equality our team also broke significant stories that were covered by mainstream news organisations.” Graeme Watson said.

Leigh Andrew Hill said he was looking forward to the year ahead with many new features to be rolled out in both the print publication and its online portal.

The 198th edition of OUTinPerth will be released next week. In March the magazine will celebrate a major milestone with it’s 200th edition.
